New Winter Nail Colors & Indie Nails to Jazz Things Up this Month

Sometimes all it takes a little something new in your life to boost your spirits, and giving yourself an at-home mani / pedi is an easy & cheap diversion. We scoured the sites for the latest new polish colors to try this Winter, along with a trendy idea if you’re feeling industrious.


Brown polish was all over the fashion pages this fall, and it does look surprisingly fresh on a neat cropped manicure. From dark chocolate & espresso to cafe & lattes, whether you go for high contrast or tonal with your skin color, brown looks new.

Nail Trend to Finally Try ~ Indie Nails

This is the one where each nail is a different color or design. Also called rainbow nails, and gradient nails when you go from light to dark in one shade. While we don’t go in for much nail art, we love this look. FYI, Indie Nails also means buying your polish from indie creators & producers, vs the big name brands.
